Rep. Rashida Tlaib, one-fourth of “The Squad,” has continued to play the victim card after she and her cohort, Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Pressley, and Omar were called out by President Donald Trump. Apparently, these congresswomen are under the impression that only they are allowed to have opinions and articulate their viewpoints. You’d think that members of Congress would understand that when you hit someone in politics, they just might hit you back. Apparently, Tlaib and the others are learning this the hard way.
Following a ridiculous press conference regarding the president’s tweets, Tlaib sat down for an interview with other members of “The Squad.” During the interview with CBS This Morning, the congresswomen discussed their standing with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. More specifically, Rashida Tlaib essentially stated that Pelosi ought to treat “The Squad” with kid gloves since they are women of color, as documented by Breitbart News.
Tlaib’s Statements for Pelosi
The congresswoman urged Speaker Pelosi to “be aware of what [she’s] doing” if she offers criticism of herself, Ocasio-Cortez, Pressley, or Omar. Tlaib continued by alleging that since “The Squad” is comprised of women of color, they should be treated differently in light of death threats and other individuals who may take issue with them.
As unbelievable as this may seem, you truly can’t make this stuff up.
In Tlaib’s own words:
“Acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you’re doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats, because some of us are being singled out in many ways because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth.”
The Real Reason Why “The Squad” Faces Backlash
Per Tlaib’s statements, it’s very clear that she, Ocasio-Cortez, Pressley, and Omar lack an understanding of the real reasons which they face criticism, even from members of their own party.
Contrary to their delusions, it has nothing to do with them being women of color and everything to do with their politics, their public statements, and what they choose to promote. These congresswomen willingly entered the political arena and, in doing so, they accepted everything which comes along with it.
It is simply not reasonable or realistic for “The Squad” to put out radically far-left policies and consistently go after their political opponents and then throw a fit when someone responds. Tlaib and her cohorts cannot constantly fling mud at President Trump and then cry racism when the president responds. That is not how the real world works and it’s certainly not how the game of politics is played. If these women want to serve as congressional elected officials, then they’re going to have to develop much tougher skin.
